Adnoc Distribution has opened the Umm Al Quwain Marine service station located at the fishermen port in the emirate.

The opening ceremony of the new service station was attended by Saeed Mubarak Al Rashidi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Adnoc Distribution and a group of senior management members of the company.

Similar to other Adnoc Distribution service stations that are equipped with the smart technologies, the new service station caters to the needs of fishermen, boat owners and motorists.

It includes three islands, two of which are maritime and one that is on land. Through four pumps, the station offers a number of fuel choices such as E-Plus 91, Special 95 and Green Diesel.

The station features marine pumps supported by high levels of safety and high efficiency where the fuelling process can gust up to 45 gallons per minute.

Saeed Mubarak Al Rashidi, Acting CEO of Adnoc Distribution, said: "At Adnoc Distribution, we consider the directives and initiatives of our wise leadership to be a top priority. We work on implementing these initiatives through our commitment to raising the quality of our services and to geographically expand across the UAE to reach all segments of the community. We are also devoted to contribute to the development of UAE’s infrastructure.”

Al Rashidi added: "The opening of Umm Al Quwain Marine service station reflects Adnoc Distribution’s growth strategy as well as its vision to keep up with the economic and urban growth that is sweeping the UAE. The expansion will also help us meet the demand for Adnoc Distribution’s services and products as we aim to raise the number of service stations to more than 450 by 2017.”

The station was also provided with floating sea barriers and corridors for safety as required by the health, environment and safety certified professional standards.

Following the opening of Kaber service station in Umm Al Quwain in early May, Adnoc Distribution is currently working on the completion of Al Haditha service station in Al Hamra area and the Al Mahthab service station in Al Mahthab area.
